Light comedy, involving a budding romance. A boy's first love turns out to be a bit more assertive than he bargains for. This involves a lot of awkward situations with a strong hint of absurdity humor, "this is so crazy it will never happen, but here's what it would look like if it did." The writing takes this up above an adult humor comedy by the fullness of the characters. These are not two dimensional one-liner delivery tools, these are fleshed out characters telling a touching story, in an offside sort of way. It takes it an episode to get warmed up, but so far it's pitching 100 and batting a 1000. Don't take my word for it, give it a go. Wouldn't be safe for work dubbed... though, I don't know who watches shows at work and is safe. Don't buy it for children, most jokes are over their heads, even most teenagers will have to look some stuff up. Definitely sums up a beautiful love story. I feel the show managed to illustrate a perfect angst filled teen romance blossoming in a comedic way.
Firstly @DMDutcher, what shows have you watched? This anime is actually very tame compared to other rocoms, secondly, the comparison to Yamada's first time end with the perverted female lead. Now then, this anime is based on a hilarious manga of the same title follows the relationship with an emotionally stunted girlfriend and her attempts to take of him, *inuendo* the antics only go farther as they get closer
Boy likes girl, boy confesses to her, and finds out she's obsessed with keeping up the girlfriend's part of sex. Essentially similar to B Gata H Kei, but instead of an overly excitable girl you have more of a monotone one. Not particularly funny, though a little more risque than usual anime rom coms.

As you can tell by the other reviews, this is a romantic comedy with serious undertones.
Boy sees girl. Boy watches girl. Boy decides to try and ask the girl out, knowing he is going to get shot down, big time, but just trying would be worth it.
The girl agrees to become his girlfriend and they start a pathway to see how they can share, not share, and how-- without much knowledge-- they can really misunderstand and get themselves into really, really awkward situations.
The major issue for the US market is that these and high school students bumping against a line that usually requires the characters be over twenty one for what they say and do, not for revealing clothing, but for emotional baggage.
It does the job fairly well, and most of the adults watching it will long for the days they were at that level, trying to understand. Fairly tame, ecchi kept well within limits, but the theme and methodology of the story mean you have to be older to understand it.
And maybe to realize you did things like that, too, just without everything working out.
Love this and I hate subs animes. The sexuality in it is funny without nudity. The things the characters say and do get twisted around and make for some great laughs. I had to hold back do to the fact everyone in my home is sleeping when I watched this.
I watched this as a streamed series on Amazon Prime. This version did not have a US voice track. It is a short series with 10 episodes. I looked at the posted reviews before writing my own. I did this because it's unusual to see such a varied range of scores. I didn't think this was that polarizing. This is the story of a boy's first love. It starts with Shinozaka confessing his love to the class cutie; Kosaka. This could have become a mundane anime roncom with a side order of fan service thrown in. What makes this different is Kosaka who doesn't seem to have a clue as to what should happen next and who uses wholly inappropriate sources to guide the relationship. This leads to a lot of double entendres and misunderstandings. Most of these are funny and Shinozaki's responses rescue the humour and carry the story. Shobitch keeps the story light and funny. It avoids the seriousness of "My first girlfriend is a gal". The humor does go over the top at times and there isn't really a story arc but it is amusing and fun to watch. This will never be on my anime top ten but as a streamed series it's pretty good. I'm not sure I'd go and buy the DVD and so this gets four stars.
Hilarious high school ecchi anime filled to the brim with perverted jokes and imagery. The comedy is obviously not for everyone and Kosaka's (the main girl pictured on the title) interpretations of what the main protagonist wants can be a bit too much.. Basically, you will know what this show is with just the first episode. The characters are one note, but it works to establish the, quickly and to use them quickly considering this anime is only 10 episodes long..
If you don't like anime of the "trash" genre, this one won't change your mind. However, for those willing to give it a chance, I think it is a delightful watch in between more serious and thought provoking shows.
